General Manager Leanne Barnes will lead the recovery effort.
 
The Tathra Bushfire recovery effort is getting ready for a major transition as coordinator Euan Ferguson prepares to return to Victoria and handover the reins to Bega Valley Shire Council general manager Leanne Barnes. 
 
Mr Ferguson was appointed in the first week after the bushfire ripped through Tathra and district on Sunday the 18th of March. 
 
Ms Barnes will take over as chair of the recovery committee and says the effort will now be focused on rebuilding, and catching any family or individuals that are falling through the gaps within the community. 
 
A meeting updating the community will be held at the Tathra Public School on Thursday. 
 
On Thursday there will be a drop in session at 5pm, before the formal meeting at 6pm, which will also be live-streamed via Bega Valley Shire Council's Facebook page.
